As part of Ballooning Network, we are the only hot air balloon flight company that launch our balloon rides from the grounds of Westonbirt Arboretum.

On the ground Westonbirt is a very unique place with a historic collection of over 3000 different trees and shrubs set in 600 acres of landscaped gardens, from the air you get a birds eye view of the trees and gardens. Westonbirt as you've never seen it before!

After inheriting Westonbirt Arboretum in 1829 from his Father, Robert Halford, a wealthy landowner, began planting trees for his own interest and pleasure. The estate passed through the family until 1956 when it was passed ot the Forestry Commission who continue to manage it today.

Westonbirt Arboretum is now visited by over 350,000 visitors a year who enjoy it's beauty and tranquility.

In spring you can see the magnificent Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Magnolias and the wild flowers of Silk Wood. During the autumn you can view the change of colours in the trees that Westonbirt is famous for.
